Re: Bunion Questions

A custom orthotic might be helpful and possibly changing the style of shoe also. I can not realistically answer your question about surgery, as I have not seen your foot or your x-rays. I think your doctor has been conservative and up front with you. I think you might have misunderstood the part about arthritis though. Surgery is often done on an arthritic joint to relieve pain and restore function. In fact, by definition, a bunion is an arthritic joint.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
